Publisher Description

Dead? Dreaming? Mad?
When Tommy Evans regains consciousness after being injured on the battlefield of modern-day Afghanistan, the world around him is not the same. Filled with cannon smoke, gunfire and the whinnying of horses, Tommy inexplicably finds himself somehow transported to the past – back to the eve of one of the British army’s worst defeats in the second Anglo-Afghan war: the Battle of Maiwand. Now he must find his way back home or face the very real possibility of perishing along with most of the soldiers of the 66th Foot, the Berkshire Regiment.  Tommy Evans will experience first hand the life and deprivations of a Victorian British soldier, from the food, clothing and equipment, to fighting close quarter battles with antiquated weapons.  He meets some endearing and great characters from the past, meets the British Indian army, and truly learns the meaning of comradeship.
